324022 Forbo Flooring p.22 Sometimes, what you see depends on how you look at it. Marmoleum mineral, prisma and graphic are unique flooring designs. Unique because when you zoom in the patterns of these natural linoleum floor coverings, they reveal themselves to be powerful, rich and refined. Yet zoom out and see them in context, and they blend together, creating an effect that no other floor covering can match. Made from renewable natural ingredients, Marmoleum features naturally inherent anti-microbial and anti-static properties for healthier indoor environments. Marmoleum’s Topshield finish provides an occupancyready floor covering with improved appearance retention and a low cost of ownership. www.FloorsByPhoenix.com British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, Maritimes 1-800-268-8108 specify performance MARMOLEUM mineral, prisma, graphic creating better environments 1-800-842-7839• info@fL-NA.com www.forboflooringNA.com www.floorcostcomparison.com
The Université du Québec has a presence there too – as do the National Institute for Scientific Research, the National School of Public Administration as wellas a cluster of high-tech organizations and start-up companies given incentives from the Quebec government to setup shop in the district. « Instead of trying to count on commercial development, we decided to capitalize on culture, education and high-technology activities to give a new identity to the area, » explains Viau. He says the municipal government also established a grant program to help artists purchase rather than rent workshops, and also live in these mixed-use spaces. Between 1992 and 2000, Quebec City also invested $31.7 million on greening projects that established public gardens throughout the Saint-Roch quarter. ARCHITECT : GROUPE CARDINAL HARDY/PHOTO : CLAUDEL HUOT A municipal project, called ZoneArt, allowed an autoroute overpass to become a public canvas for alfresco murals and graffiti. And, to the delight of many, an outdoor roof, which covered a kilometre-long stretch of retail space along Saint-Joseph Street, has been completely removed. « It never worked, it was ugly – it was completely a disaster, » says Viau. « Beautiful historic buildings that were completely hidden by this roof can now be seen. » The current challenge is to attract more Quebec City residents and tourists to the area. « People are used to going to shopping malls in the suburbs, and have lost the habit of going downtown. We have to convince them to come back, » says Viau. But it’s a bit of a Catch-22. 339894 Trulite Industries 1/2h As it approaches its 400th anniversary, Quebec City would like specialty shops to springup in the district, yet some developers are waiting for customer traffic to increase before making any commitments. « Shops are coming, but more slowly than we thought, » says Viau, who adds that it will take about 10 years to completely revitalize the commercial activities in Saint-Roch. Still, the 25-year veteran Quebec City official is heartened by the progress made in giving Saint-Roch a new lease on life. « There are now bars and restaurants filled with artists, students and people living and working in the area, » says 64-yearold Viau. « Our overall success has come more rapidly than what we planned, and for that I am very glad. » ■ THE ROYAL ARCHITECTURAL INSTITUTE OF CANADA/L’INSTITUT ROYAL D’ARCHITECTURE DU CANADA ■ 23 339894_Trulite.indd 1 10/4/07 7:54:02 PM ARCHITECT : GROUPE CARDINAL HARDY/PHOTO : CLAUDEL HUOT Architectural revitalization And, to the delight of many, an outdoor roof, which covered a kilometre-long stretch of retail space along Saint-Joseph Street, has been completely removed. « It never worked, it was ugly – it was completely a disaster. » www.raic.org/2008
